AGRICULTURE IN ALASKA.
Rrmarkcble Possibilities cf the Far
The area of Alaska is so great that
the United states government main
tain* live agricultural experiment sta
tions in the territory, so situated. th-.\[
crops may tie tested under till the ell*
IQgtiC <;onUitinns. Sltkn. o>; the strip
of const projecting southeast, has a
fairly mild climate, while the station
at Rampart is close to the arctic cir
cle. C. C. Georgcsou, special agent in
charge of all tliv stations, in his an
nual report for 1908, recently issued bj
the United States department of agri
culture, declares unqualifiedly that
"Alnska is an agricultural country,''
that good bay can he produced "In any
quantity" for winter feeding, while the
native grasses ?'can maintain livestock
in excellent condition In summer.'' He
says also that "potatoes, cabbage, caul
iflower, rhubarb, turnips, lettuce and.
In short, al! the hardy vegetables cau
be grown to perfection tip to and even
within (be arctic circle, as has been
proved by thousands of settlers." P.ut
before Alaska can be largely settled
railroads and wagon roads must be
built. Under present conditions, he
Bays, "few farmers can afford to go to
Alaska with their families, live stock
nnd equipment," The expense of trans
portation "would equal the cost of a
farm in the states."
Abundant sunshine is essential for
good crops in Alaska. In 1008 the rain
fall during the growing season at
Sitka was 10.22 Inches against 24.7<
inches the y< a; before and 18.01 inches
in 1006. The smaller rainfall meant
more sunshine, and the result in 1008
was large crops of potatoes, cabbage,
cauliflower and various root crops.
The quality also was better.
Mr. Georgeson believes that Alaska
has undeveloped resources sufficient
for the support of a large population.
Put there, as he says, '?Nature is stern
and uncompromising, and wo must sub
mit to the conditions she imposes."
Among many Interesting facts given
in the report Is this: Watermelons
were brought to maturity out of doors
on the Hot Springs farm, which Is in
the Tanana valley, in latitude (14 de
grees north. It seems that on part of
this farm the soil is warmed from the
same source, whatever it is, that boats
the water of the springs. This farm
has now ll>0 acres regularly under
